About me

In the South Asian culture, we often experience stigma and shame when seeking therapy to look after our mental health. However, some of the cultural beliefs can negatively impact your mental health, and it is important to break the intergenerational patterns to look after your needs. Our team understands that seeking therapy can be anxiety-provoking and taking the first step in finding a therapist is huge to start your healing journey. Our team is here to support and guide you every step of the way in meeting your therapy goals.

Most of the psychological treatments are based on western psychology, and we know the importance of integrating cultural, religious, or spiritual frameworks when providing research-based treatment to our clients. We also work from an anti-oppressive framework. We understand that racism and discrimination can take a toll on our mental health. We will support you to have a voice and advocate for yourself, whether at school, at work, or in any other context.

We provide a safe and confidential space to hear your story and the experiences you have been through and rediscover a sense of courage and hope for the future.
